Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

LANDOVER, Md., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a recall by Procter & Gamble, Giant Food of Landover, Md. removed from sale Vicks® DayQuil® Cold & Flu 24-Count LiquiCaps Bonus Pack because this product does not contain a child-resistant backing for the blister packs in the box, despite label statements that the product is in child-resistant packaging.

All codes of the following UPC are affected:

Vicks® DayQuil® Cold & Flu 24-Count LiquiCaps Bonus Pack, UPC03-2390-01087

To date, no accidental ingestion by children has been reported with this product, and the medication itself is safe for use when taken as directed. However, this product is not intended for use by children under 12, unless recommended by a physician. The lack of child-resistant packaging means it is possible that a child could gain access to the medicine.

Consumers who wish to continue to use the product should do so as directed, taking extra care to keep it out of the reach of children. Consumers who purchased this DayQuil® 24-count product with the expectation that it was in child-resistant packaging can call P&G at 1-800-251-3374 for a refund or replacement coupon. Anyone with a question can call P&G at this toll-free number or visit www.vicks.com.

Customers who have purchased the affected products may also return unused portions or bring their purchase receipt to Giant for a full refund. Customers may call Giant at 1-877-846-9949, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or visit www.giantfood.com for more information.
